Maximum comfort, minimal risk of blisters. Developed for demanding treks on and off groomed trails. The X-Socks Outdoor perfectly complements a sporty trekking shoe or a mid-cut boot. While the X-Cross Bandage, Lambertz-Nicholson Achilles Tendon Protector and Toe Protectors protect the foot from injury, a temperature-regulating system provides for comfortably dry feet. With every step, the Traverse AirFlow Channels under the soles pump moisture out of the shoe via the Air-Conditioning Channel. Fresh air is pulled in between every step. Simulatenously, the AirVent Zone on the instep maintains space for air to circulate unimpeded. With that you gain an optimally temperature-regulated, dry foot that resists blisters.
Skin Nodor is a climate-activated nano-filament which incorporates an inorganic, bacteriostatic ingredient in its interior. The gradual release of ions, which are activated by body heat, is the key to the effectiveness of Skin Nodor. These ions inhibit the growth of microorganisms rather than eliminating them outright, thus preserving the delicate balance of the skin‘s ecosystem. In other words, Skin Nodor is bacteriostatic (i.e. it inhibits bacterial growth), rather than bactericidal (bacteria-killing). Therefore, allergic reactions do not occur. Skin Nodor is especially soft and breathable and provides superior fit.
A lightweight, pH neutral, hypoallergenic fibre. Reduces the accumulation of germs and bacteria.
Impact-absorbing, hollow-core fibres for reducing pressure and impact thanks to enclosed air chambers.
X-Socks positioned the Air-Conditioning Channel under the arch of the foot, the area that normally does not touch the ground. It begins there and then moves along the foot up to the cuff. Covering only 30 % of the skin’s surface, it is constructed using a fine-knit mesh, so with every step, moist air is pumped out of the shoe and fresh air is drawn back in. An optimal air circulation system for the foot is now a reality: fresh air can even be circulated within a snug-fitting shoe.
Traverse AirFlow Channel System
The three-channel cross-ventilation system helps conduct warmth and moisture into the Air-Conditioning Channel.
Lambertz-Nicholson Achilles Tendon Protector
The special Lambertz-Nicholson Achilles Tendon Protector prevents strain on the sensitive Achilles tendon because it is protected by a surrounding cushion. This shockabsorbing cushion serves as a buffer between foot and shoe and thus prevents pressure and friction.
The feet depend on the fine-tuned interaction of tendons, ligaments, muscles and joints. One careless step can be enough to destroy this experienced team. Therefore the ankles require extra protection without inhibiting the foot’s freedom. This is why X-Socks invented the X-Cross Bandage. It is a cross ankle bandage knitted from an elastic material, which stabilises the ankle and optimally supports the foot’s function without limiting the freedom of movement.
